When I'm With You
One evening, I decided to ask my partner what her definition of love was. She said she didn’t have a ready-made definition, but it was whatever she felt when we were together. (Ten points.) I asked her what she felt exactly, and she said, “Well, my heart skips a beat. We kiss and I see stars.” (Okay, now you’re pushing it.) It was then that I realized I feel the exact opposite when I’m with someone I love—that my heart rate actually slows down and I feel like I’m able to get a grip on my life.
The world is exhausting. It is only when I’m with my partner that I am able to regroup, recoup, and recover.
This song is my definition of love set to music.
